Obama hates "white folks" because he mentioned past racism he experienced during a racially charged time in America?
Are you getting the statements and context of the book confused with present day America or do you just want to censor anyone that speaks of its
By your logic anyone that lived during in the segregation era, pre-civil/equal rights America and went through blatant and legal racial discrimination
isn't allowed to write about how they were treated and felt about the treatment or they themselves are the bigots.
I guess if Rosa Parks wrote the story of how a little over fifty years ago she was sick of being treated as a second class citizen, forced to sit in
the back of the bus, and faced almost daily racial abuse by a white majority delivered with impunity you'd castigate her as the bigot?
I guess if Sammy Davis Jr. wrote about how when in the military his fellow white soldiers kidnapped him from the barracks at night, tied him up and
poured white paint all over him while racially berating him, you'd blame him if he stated how racist a lot of whites were at the time? How this was
not uncommon or punishable?
America has a brutally racist past. Although "past" is the operative term, it is still a FACT.
Maybe you haven't but a lot of people have lived through those times. If you haven't then you are just speaking from a vacuum with no real
reference since America has changed and you're in a more different world now. It wasn't centuries ago that blacks in some states were forced to sit
in the back of the bus. They have a right to express the feelings and interactions of that time.
Stop whining and trying to REWRITE and CENSOR history.
If it makes you feel uncomfortable then don't read, watch or listen to the facts and feelings of the people that lived through a racially tough
This is more divisive racial propaganda and polarization for political purposes.
This is more rubbish.
